Embellished Starbucks Bottles

Last week I wrote a post on a French-y makeover I gave to a vintage-inspired bottle carrier here.  I'm happy to report that I found the perfect bottles to fit inside it!  Believe it or not - they are Starbucks Frappuccino bottles:
I simply peeled off the Starbucks labels (after enjoying the Vanilla Frappuccino, of course!).  I replaced them with these great French images from The Graphics Fairy.  I printed them onto to clear Avery label paper and cut them to size.
I added rhinestones to both bottles.  For one, I tied a key from Michael's on and for the other, I added a keyhole with some twine.
I also added some vintage lace to make them look a little less beverage bottle and more chic.  Nevermind those air bubbles you see, I flattened them out after snapping the pics.
Don't they fit perfectly?!  I had to prop them up a little by wedging some tissue paper in the bottom of each slot.
I have two more that I need to makeover this week.  I'm just so happy that I found the perfect sized bottles!

Well, that worked out! I'm guessing you won't have to force yourself to drink another few bottles to fill it up! : )
